Welcome to Year 5's Class Page
I am Miss Cresswell, the fortunate teacher of Year 5 and I would like to introduce our class page. In Year 5, we are also very lucky to be supported by Miss Morgan on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Here is where you will find out about the exciting and enjoyable things we have been getting up to during the year. The children in Year 5 are passionate and determined learners who are always willing to try new things in order to deepen their understanding. Please explore our ‘Curriculum Page’ to gain an insight into what we are learning this year!
PE is currently taking place on a Tuesday and alternative Friday afternoons whereby the children will take part in multiple Rugby Tots sessions and Badminton sessions. Please ensure your child has full PE kit in school on Monday ready for activities during the week. It is vital for the children to bring full PE kit so they can take part in the PE sessions safely and comfortably.
Reading is a very important aspect of learning and can make a fantastic impact across the different subjects. We actively encourage children to read every night and record what they have read in their Reading Record. The Reading Record is to be signed by an adult at home regularly. It is important that your child has a book bag so they are able to take home their Reading Record and Reading book.
In Year 5, homework will be allocated on a Friday and is to be completed by the following Thursday. This year, Year 5 will have homework set online as well as new spellings each half term that the children are to revise at home. Year 5 will also complete weekly arithmetic/reasoning tests which they are to take home and revise from each week. The children should identify areas of the test that they find challenging. The children are encouraged to come and see me in the morning if they are unsure on any of the questions and we can go through this together. If you or your child are ever unsure on a piece of homework, please do not hesitate to speak to me.
KS2 children in Holy Cross attended a fun and informative performance about E-Safety. The performers travelled into the different apps and explored the different issues with them. They spoke about how Google can have issues - as not everything we read on the internet is true! Looking into the Snapchat app, the children learnt about issues like cyber-bullying. We also learnt about the importance of age restrictions on games such as; Fortnite, which depicts violent. Year 5 children then participated in a follow up workshop whereby the children enhanced their understanding of how to stay safe online.
